A NEW parlour serving delectable sweet treats will be opening in the high street.

Heavenly Desserts, has applied to Colchester Council to open a franchise next to the proposed Byron Burger restaurant.

It was founded in 2008 and developed through expansion with stores in Birmingham, Leicester, Derby, Nottingham and Preston.

Their culinary creations have also been welcomed in Liverpool recently.

They describe themselves as having a menu "especially for those with a passion for the finest desserts".

On the menu you will find things like Ferrero Rocher cookie dough, blueberry pancakes and milkshakes.

The new store will be fitted with contemporary, relaxed, interior ahead of its launch in the summer, which is bringing not only a new artisan dessert experience to Colchester, but new job opportunities as well.

Simon Robinson, National Operations Manager for Heavenly Desserts, said: “We will have over 22 new roles from supervisor, front and back of house jobs, so if you love your desserts and want the chance to join our community of dessert artists – we’d love to hear from you.”

More information about how to apply can be found on the Heavenly Desserts website, or Facebook page when recruitment begins just before the store launch.

Yousif Aslam, Heavenly Desserts managing director, added: “We are proud of the menu creations we have designed and the experience we have created, however our ultimate mission is to make every guest in Colchester leave with a smile – and nothing would give us more pride and satisfaction that doing just that.”
